Turtles / Alligator Extreme Posing

From our sister site. I thought this image was so special it should be on this web site also.

On Sunday I posted photos of turtles posing on an Alligator ramp and logs to sun themselves out of the water. Yesterday in the same spot an Alligator was using a turtle as a head rest and more turtles were clambering to join the group.

Further along in a different pond a similar activity was taking place with a much larger Alligator, only this time the turtles were on top.

Do they have no suspicion that they might be lunch?

We returned by this spot about an hour and a half later to find the Alligator had changed position but at least one free-loader was still in place.

The nature guide at Magnolia Garden identifies these turtles as Yellow-bellied Sliders.
